The RedBull events team must’ve had my phone number on file from the last stupid idea, so they called me, and then I spoke to the guys, and then we accepted their silly challenge – to design and construct (and destruct) a gravity powered death-defying […]
Not fully healed from the bad off at White Mountain last month, so it’s a good thing we took it handy in Glendalough. It was a tough course, no doubt, but being complete pussies, we managed to stop for snacks and photos every now and […]
I had a bad off on the first timed section and landed hard on my right shoulder. Managed to get back on the bike and complete the lap, but couldn’t ride at any real pace, was just limping back to park ferme to return my […]
Ok, you’ve probably heard it before, but keeping your Air Filter clean and oiled is massively important. It’s the one part, that neglected or used incorrectly, will have a huge impact on cylinder wear. We ride dirt bikes, in the dirt. There’s dust and mud and […]
Changing your oil and filters regularly is important if you want to keep your bike in top condition. It’s a simple process that everyone should easily be able to do themselves, but there are a few things to note on any bike before you start. […]
A few days in Rome followed by a few more days in Copenhagen. Was interesting to try out, but if we’re squeezing two destinations into the one holiday in future, I think we need an extra couple of days. It was fairly hectic. A lot […]
Stripped down to the bare metal and a ground up rebuild for this 20 year old Honda Cub 90. Every nut and bolt.
So, after busting my wheel bearings recently, it looked like I wasn’t going to make it to this years Paddy Dakar. But then. At the last minute. . a rear wheel belonging to a CRF250R became available. Ok, so its a 19″ instead of 18″ […]
Roadtripping around Japan. TooCo rentals at Nerima, transferring trains at Hamamutsho, bowing at temples in Kyoto, traditional Japanese BBQ in Fujikawaguchico, waay too many beers in Osaka, hiking at Tsumago, feeding feral deer in Nara. What an absolutely amazing place. The people are really friendly […]

Iceland had been on my list of must see places for years and so when the chance came I jumped at it with both feet. And how amazing was it?? It was out of this world, breathtaking, just WOW !!! Already I can’t wait to […]
Found some nice trails. And some nice bogland. Nice soft bogland. With holes. Big holes that could swallow a bike. Was fun dragging her out.. you know one of the best qualities of a dirtbike in a boghole is the way the back tyre digs […]
On Friday afternoon a bunch of the guys and I headed towards Doon in Co.Limerick for the Paddy Dakar. Gazebos were raised, BBQs were lit, tyres were kicked, burgers devoured, and one or two beverages may have been consumed. It was a grand old weekend. […]
Road tripping the North-West coast from Belfast around the Causeway Coast to Derry and all the way around auld Donegal, searching for the famed chicken ranches made famous by Goats Don’t Shave.
I mounted a GoPro Hero3+ onto a rear facing snake-arm that attached to the peak of my helmet for some reverse view photographic experimentation. Shot in PES mode, and captured a still image every few seconds or so until I got bored and went home […]
